If you want to start creating compelling reports with strong insights into information over time, then you’ve got to know how to use all the variations of time intelligence functions. Some are easy, but others are much more advanced and can be difficult to use. In this post though, I want to take you back

The ALL function is an extremely important part of the DAX language in Power BI. It can be used in a number of different ways within formulas that allow you to calculate results seamlessly when combined with the filtering available in the data model. Simply put, the ALL function can remove any context that is

You have tremendous flexibility to build on top of your data by bringing in values from additional tables to flex the numbers or stress your results with scenarios.
The DATEADD function is by far my go to time intelligence function in DAX at the moment. Mainly because of it’s immense versatility to generate time comparisons over a range of different time frames. This detailed video will go through all the various aspects of how to set up time comparison analysis with this function.
